SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) — An early morning fire swept through a two-story wood frame house in eastern New York on Thursday, killing four people, including three children, authorities said. A fourth child was injured and taken to a burn unit at Westchester Medical Center. The fire in Schenectady, just west of the capital of Albany, broke out shortly after 4 a.m. It was the third fire of the night in the city of about 66,000 people and struck shortly after firefighters fought another blaze about a half-mile away.
